The Eye of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Person Singular with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.144 billion Archivists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Environment and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monaster. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archivian economy, worth a remarkable 2,712 trillion 🍒🍒🍒winlines a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 379,659 🍒🍒🍒winlines, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,881,425 per year while the poor average 43,443, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Cheap goods stamped "Made In Dàguó" are increasingly rare, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, t-shirts displaying a photo of First Person Singular performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Three-Toed Indecent Dolphin Mutant Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 34,486th in the world and 158th in Forest for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,983.75 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
